No words Today
This morning I awoke to the news of the church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina. Nine people were killed, nine folks who were just sitting in church, worshipping, praying, singing; six women and three men demonstrating only faith.
No doubt many will ask "Where was God?" And there will be no satisfactory answers.
From my chair in the kitchen I can say with great confidence that God was indeed there. But would I dare to believe such a thing if I had been in Emanuel AME Church Wednesday evening? And if God was there then why did this God who is love, not do anything to prevent the unspeakable terror?" Again, there will be no satisfactory answers.
It's not a time for words.
